Fortnite's New Island Teased As The Bat Cave
Fighting crime in the streets of Gotham has become the bane of Batman's life. Having flat-footed Penguin, gave Mr Freeze the cold shoulder, caught the Riddler in a web of lies, and muffled the Joker's quips, the dauntless dualist has cleansed the pesky streets of mercenary madness and proceeded to cast his signal over an entirely new island.
With his beaming yellow light illuminating the skies and reflecting off a floating bus, Batman has landed in Fortnite with a vengeance.
Having been reintroduced to the battle royale in April, alongside mischievous madwoman Harley Quinn, Batman's armoured skin was not the only thing Epic and DC had cooking up. The two developers joined forces and created a comic book, true to Batman's nature, depicting the shadowed assailant in combat on the island.
In the comics, Batman's haven is a sly shack, littered with mess - clearly, Robin was the tidy one. Dataminers have found the design in Fortnite's files, however, fans have yet to find the hero's hut in-game.
Until now. We think...
Where is the Bat Cave in Fortnite?
Having first appeared in the last update, the 16.40 patch notes saw the island beneath Flush Factory grow, expanding out of the ground. Also known as Oroisle or Oro Island, the area has nearly doubled in size, making it a new mysterious POI.
This new POI may contain the wooden shed, acting as a downsized Wayne Manor. As the films and comics suggest, the Bat Cave lies beneath the terrain and therefore may lie beneath the surface of Fortnite's rising retreat.
Fortnite Patch 16.40 - Oro Island
Despite the obvious place to hide such a sanctuary, there remains one problem. Oro island is named after Orella, the female Oro skin. The flourishing female is tinted with gold, and the island actually plays homage to her Golden Assault Rifle - which also unlocks a secret Lara Croft skin variant when used.
The Bat Cave remains elusive, but it wouldn't be like Epic to keep it hidden for much longer. Maybe Oro Island can become big enough for two bullish badasses?
